Jack of all trades… master of none.
That’s me. I’ll be honest. I’m up front about it! I’m no florist, I’m no photographer, but I AM in love with all things art. So, it lends itself naturally to sucking me in during different seasons of my life. Lisa has been sweet enough to take advantage of this- as well as another client or two who shall be revealed at a later time- by allowing me the opportunity to do some fun and funky flowers for her.
The theme: peacock. Her wedding colors are kelly green, teal, and black with ivory as the base [and not white]. Since, for flowers, the selection is bleak, I played up the funky factor and went full force. A quick, ROUGH trial of what she’ll be seeing coming her June wedding…
Blue stem-dyed vendelah roses, lush deep fuscia dahlias, kermit mums, plum calla lillies, and purple mokara orchids. YUM in a word. Mix in a few peacock eyes and a black glass vase and we’re in business.
We’ve decided to go with a smaller size vase than this, so that we can PACK the flowers inside instead of arranging them a bit more sparse-like, as they are in these photos. Like I said- a rough trial!
Luckily, the venue is providing us with these kickin’ teal linens, which will tie in all of our colors easily. SO fun. Seriously.
It should be VERY stressful and simultaneously VERY fun. I definitely have a passion for floral work but taking on multiple weddings at this point in the game is -as Josh continually tells me- unwise as I don’t have the space and conditions yet to accommodate this passion. :)
Once I do- trust me, you’ll know. Until then, enjoy the arrangements I make for my own personal fulfillment.
Hope you loved this as much as we did.
